163 - wow where does the time go? I first joined in on this at about week 48! Not been on for a while again, always seem to be so busy at the moment, but thought I better aim for this week and hopefully next as I have no idea what will happen during the holidays when the children are off - we are not going away (boo hoo -although we have only just come back from two weeks in California so its not all bad!) so will be doing lots of day trips particularly on the days OH works from home (Wednesday being one of them!).
Anyway I am digressing - here is my desk as of yesterday afternoon:
as you can see I am still in a sewing mood - this is a Halloween quilt kit I bought in the States - I thought it involved lots of piecing together but its actually two big panels with eight strips around them so it only took me a couple of hours yesterday - am hoping to go up a level with my quilting skills and put a big cobweb on there rather than just sew around in all the ditches which is what I have done up until now! (I feel its time to move on!). Have just edited this to add that the cupcake sitting there is actually a really cute needlecase - made from a pattern I bought ages ago and the mushroom house is a pincushion which was a Christmas gift from my friend Julie at our crop - hadn't noticed that I had such things on my desk this week that would cause so much interest!
I would just like to say a big thank you to all my new followers - 22 of you in just the past week! - wow, I am delighted to have you all following my endeavours! And also a big thank you to everyone who has already signed up for my Great British Blog Hop - there are eight of us so far which is more than I thought for my first blog hop but sign up is still open for another week so watch this space!
If you would like to know why I am baring my workspace with an UFO on display then pop over to Julias to see what all the commotion is about but be warned its very addictive!
